Nintendo’s Wii Zapper will be available across Europe in time for Christmas, the company said today. The white, double-handed, machine gun peripheral will ship on 7 December, bundled with the Link’s Crossbow Training game. Additional titles are promised, including Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles. Wii_zapper Nintendo's …
Will they be releasing Operation Wolf on the Wii Shopping Channel? That would be very cool.............
£20 seems like a good price.
Different rates of fire are possible too.
Presumably by repeatedly depressing the trigger button at variable rates...?
I'm so very excited! £20 is a really decent price, though I must admit, the Link's Crossbow Training is what really excites me.
I'd be happier if they worked on boosting the console supply across Europe, I can't find one on the high street for love nor money!
A lump of plastic?
Well technically its just a lump of plastic that you slide in your Wiimote and nunchuck into. A bit expensive for it too.
This should go nicely with my MAME Arcade Cabinet tho - I've got my Wiimote connected to the MAME PC via bluetooth, running the classic shooty Arcade title called Point Blank.
Now I wonder if u can buy the zapper separately from the Zelda game?
>The Zapper also relays re-positioning movements, ....
No, its the Wiimote that does this on its own, it does it separately for all games on the Wii don't you know!
I'd wager that this thing will end up being superceded by somebodys homebrew project - made out of resin or something. I want mine looking like an AK47, not a Steyr Aug. Step to it.
The Zapper looks like a Steyr AUG about as much as a Derringer looks like a Desert Eagle.
I'll agree about the Zapper being superceded by a homebrew (or alternative third-party) housing, though. The chunk-of-plastic look doesn't do it for me, and it seems like the same is true for many others as well.
I so hope my friend gets this. :P I wouldn't mind giving it a go! PARTICULARLY IF IT WERE MODDED TO BE AN M4 CARBINE!
Great fun in perspective
At the condition that they put out a game where you can hunt today's politicians from every country. Could be a very cultural game, you know. Chasing after the Queen in the stately halls of Buckingham Palace, gunning down Sarkozy under the Eiffel Tower, or blasting Dubya to bits in a pretzel parlor.
If they make a game like that, I'll buy a Wii with all the accessories, just for that game. Promise !
Looks like a Steyr Aug? No...looks like a lump of cheap plastic.
All we need now is for someone to port Namco's awesome "Point Blank" (but not "Point Blank II" cos it was too hard! ;). Also a new version of NES Duck Hunt - preferably where you can shoot your pesky dog and, perhaps, hen harriers?
Only £20 too - good stuff. Along with Guitar Hero III, I reckon this will have Wii's flying off the shelves this Xmas!
